It is believed that one's worship is not complete without visiting Tiruchanur and worshipping the deity, Padmavathy.

Sri Padmavathi Temple is located about 5 km away from the Tirumala Hills. The temple is dedicated to the Goddess Padmavati who is the consort of Lord Venkateswara. Constructed during the period of Thondaman Chakravarthy, it is said that the devotees should pay respect to this temple before visiting the Sri Venkateshwara Temple.

This temple is said to hold the tale of Padmavati’s birth and marriage to Lord Venkateshwara. The daughter of Akasha Raja of Thondamandalam, the Goddess Padmavati, was said to have been found in a lotus when the king performed a yagna, and hence she was named Padmavati. She is also called Alamelu Manga, which means an inexhaustible source of love and compassion. Once she grew up, it is believed that Lord Venkateshwara came for her and wedded her in a heavenly manner.
